The class sizes of around 5-8 pupils were amazing compared to the 25 pupils in a typical Swiss secondary school and provided a great learning environment. My teachers would always find time to help me with my prep or even provide extra lessons as we were getting closer to the exams. It’s also great that you can really pick the subjects you are strongest at and don’t have to worry about the ones you are not really interested in. This is different from my home country where you don’t really get such a choice.
The Squash program at Wycliffe was one of the main reasons why I chose the school. With amazing facilities right on campus, it made it very easy to train without affecting my studies as there was no time lost travelling to the squash courts or the gym.
Also, the staff (teachers) were very supportive when I for example, had a tournament on a Friday and would miss lessons. They would always take their time to help me catch up. Sports wise I was lucky to have two amazing coaches who would always motivate me to train but also help me with issues off the court.
I think the main thing I loved and am very thankful for about Wycliffe was the continuous support from both staff and other pupils in every area which made my time at Wycliffe truly amazing. It really felt like one big family. The support regarding future careers with events such as the Futures fair made me think about my future and gave me the necessary support and insights needed which I don’t think I would’ve had if I had stayed at my old school in Switzerland. I always felt like the staff really cared about me and my future.
My parents really liked the fact that there was never a moment during my time at Wycliffe where they didn’t feel like someone was looking after me and really cared about my studies and my future.
